Feast of Eden Cooks at Home!

Welcome to a unique digital magazine! Make yourself at home, and get ready to be inspired to cook something! 

I grew up living the “farm-to-table” lifestyle before the current trend made it a “thing”! It was just the normal way of doing things on a farm. There’s nothing new under the sun!

I’m Chef Lisa Bellan and this website and digital magazine is my labor of love.  I’m a fifth-generation Midwestern farm girl who grew up living the “farm-to-table” lifestyle, years before it was trendy.  I’ve spent decades (I won’t say exactly how many!) as a cook, personal chef, caterer, teacher, and owner of a 5-star rated café. My food is “homey”, a reflection of my roots, with a few twists!  I believe that great food need not be fancy, but it must be honest, simple, and made from fresh, quality ingredients.

My website and digital magazine are designed to share with you the recipes and techniques I’ve acquired from years of cooking professionally. The digital format allows me to be responsive to members, embracing the growing community of people who crave my style of food, always striving to keep it fresh!  I believe you’ll appreciate the opportunity to add new recipes and skills to your own culinary back pocket and join me and the rest of the Feast family as we cook our way through the seasons. Here’s a quick overview of the features of Feast of Eden Cooks at Home!

·         When you sign up for Chef Lisa’s Emails, you’ll get a weekly email with a free “preview” recipe, all of which are available to anyone on the website.  But that is just a nibble of the much bigger pie that members enjoy!

Here are things you’ll love as a member-(the rest of the pie)!

·         Monthly digital magazine published with exclusive Member’s Only tried-and-true seasonal recipes, some with professionally produced video demonstrations.  (About 200 recipes per year!)
